 Since we were not wearing shoes in the area where the tournament was being played, the toilets had to have shoes to keep your feet clean. This is a standard practice in Japan. The bottle on the chair next to the door is some sort of germ killer. Most public places have this sort of thing as a way to reduce the chance of the flu spreading. This toilet is the men's room, by the way.
This is the entrance to the women's room. Do you notice anything different between the two pictures?

The shoes in the men's room were left just the way the men stepped out of them when leaving. However, in the women's room, the shoes are all carefully turned around so that it will be easy for the next person to step into them.
